In the wake of the mass shooting in Buffalo, the Women’s Center affirms that Black lives matter.

The lives of those who were killed matter. The lives of those who were injured matter. News articles sharing their names, that their individual humanity might be honored and remembered, already portray some of their many ties to countless others also traumatized by the violence. Those lives, too, matter.

a word from the women's center

Our hearts are heavy. We are angry. The world is hurting.
 
The Women’s Center condemns the horrific killings of Michelle Go and Christina Yuna Lee. Michelle Go, a 40-year-old Chinese American, was pushed into the path of an oncoming subway train on January 15, 2022. Weeks later, Christina Yuna Lee, a 35-year-old Korean American, was followed home and killed in her apartment on February 13, 2022. We mourn for their family and friends.

The Women’s Center stands in solidarity with the Black community and honors the life of Amir Locke, the 22-year old man who was shot and killed by a police officer in Minneapolis on February 2. We also hold concern for the well-being of those in our community experiencing the trauma that racism inflicts.

We stand with our students and colleagues engaged in anti-racist work, echoing their calls for justice and equity. We affirm that Black lives, Black dreams, Black perspectives, Black experiences, Black futures matter.

a word from the women's center

As the first of three verdicts in trials involving racial/racialized violence has just come out (Kyle Rittenhouse's trial today, with the Charlottesville trial of the Unite the Right organizers and the trial of the men who killed Ahmaud Arbery anticipated within the next few days), this is a moment to be especially attentive to community and self-care.

a word from the women's center

Crises of all kinds disproportionately impact the most vulnerable. And the well-being of women and children is tenuous at best in many places, especially where poverty is deepest. We at the Women’s Center are gravely concerned for those whose lives are threatened by the earthquake in Haiti and the political turmoil in Afghanistan. Closer to home, we know there are students who are worried about loved ones in Haiti and Afghanistan. We’re here to support you.

a word from the women's center

At the Women's Center, we hold the family of George Floyd, especially his daughter, in our thoughts tonight. We recognize that this trial has further traumatized the witnesses who testified. The Women's Center stands in solidarity with the Black community and all those who have suffered from the racism that still exists in our society.
